Written by Dr. Dianna Emory, a retired licensed mental health counselor, Bonding with Nature presents a warm and practical guide to finding solace in the natural world around us. Well-versed in holistic approaches to healing, Dr. Emory offers her professional and personal strategies for dealing with life's challenges, particularly those relating to cancer, advancing age, and family crises.
She describes the use of visualization techniques, healthy diet, and regular exercise in nature, guiding the reader in their care for body and mind, and care for the world around them. Using the transformational power of public parks, preserves, and the natural world, she shows how to take everyday recreational and sensory experiences and translate them into memories to store for future use in darker times.
As a lifelong volunteer in environmental organizations, Dr Emory has brought her love of the water and the natural world to her healing practice, and offers it to readers who may be facing challenges in their own lives.
